These often represent slowed blood flow through the area due to nasal allergies/irritants. It is more cosmetic than problem. Nasal rinses with saline or use of steroid nasal sprays can reduce the intensity in some.

I agree, other conditions include hereditary tendency, anemia. Consider allergy testing and avoid common allergens and smoke.
